Shangri-La Hotel The Marina Cairns 5-star Hotel Refurbishment

Shangri-La Hotel The Marina Cairns 5-star Hotel Refurbishment.

Since we finished our part in the renovation of the Shangri-La Hotel in Sydney we have enjoyed a really busy 7 months. We have shipped mirrors to WA, SA, Vic, Qld and the ACT, Also the USA, UK and EU. Designing a crate to hold the fragile mirrors was no easy task but having decades of shipping glass around the world we feel our crates can width stand any shipping company.

shangri-la-hotel-cairnsThe designers for the Shangri-La Hotel – The Marina – Cairns wanted special mirrors, 34 of them. We were given a basic plan of 2 different styles of mirror and an illustration of what they should look like. Our challenge was to come up with the best and most practical way to make them. After two days of innovative trials we were all set. We started manufacture and by the time we had made the first five or so it became a smooth production process.   

Some of the mirrors were 2.1 metres long and about 1 metre high weighing in at around 70kgs with a metal frame. We finished production on time.

We took some photos after the installation of the first big mirror. We will have more images after the professional photographers have done their bit after the refurbishment is finished.

Now its back to work catching up on orders and hopefully getting our lead time back down to two or three weeks.
